Yup it's her bra you see and it's not the first time she has done it. Two summers ago she also wore a see-through blue top showing her white bra in Mallorca at night, but of course no one criticized her in the press or even in forums like this. The Queen can get away with murder. Can you imagine if it was Letizia who wore something like that?

I remember these pictures and it was even more obvious. Showing the bra is unsuitable for any royal woman no matter what age or rank (of course it looks even more ridiculous on a 70+ year old).

I agree with Grevinnan. She looks lovely , kind, extremely caring with her grandchildren. For me, that´s the important matter.

I'm not convinced that she was wearing a see-through blouse. Both instances were at night with cameras flashing. I've seen plenty of pictures of family and friends where you can see their bra even though their blouses were not see-through. The camera flash reveals a lot more than you'd like it to sometimes; although being Queen, she should have known this and worn a different material.


Let it also be said that I think Queen Sofia is the best royal grandmother, and like Carminha Stalker and Grevinnan, I think that it's her loving interactions with her grandchildren that were most important.

I don't know if she's the best but judged from what we can see she's certainly a benchmark for others. Sofia does a lot with her grandchildren in the public eye - maybe others don't - but it's so natural and warm and a proof that "going public" doesn't mean "showing off". I believe that she gains a lot of - maybe even most - joy and strength from her relationship with her grandchildren - ok there is her sister but her own children have grown up and focus on their own lifes and JC ... well, it's first and foremost about keeping the spanish monarchy alive, I guess.

Ladejesus I also think that Queen Sofía is the best royal grandmother. Sofia has always been a great woman, loving and warm. I suppose that this is due to the Mediterranean character that is less cold than in other countries.

I can't recall they or she ever went to Asturias during the summer holidays? My guess would be that they will go somewhere unknown to the media when the Prince is back from his southamerica events to spend at least a week in total privacy.

I guess she's in Palma because the girls stayed there while she was in Beinjing for the olympics

How wonderful to see the Undangarins at last. It´s great to see the twins from Jordania, as well. They all seem to get along great.
